ridiculous situation

hi,

this is kinda broad...say you've inherited 5 ( R.H.
linux ) machines.   all of which have been on for a
year, not firewalled and not backed up.

management has a "ain't broke don't fix" mentality.  i
guess, what would you do?   how would you be sure
there are no trojans, bots etc...chkrootkit and so on,
i suppose, but how reliable will the results be?   how
can i be sure there isn't a key-logger in the kernel.

you can't simply firewall them off and leave them for
dead.   legal action can be taken against the company
in the event of a break-in and subsequent attacks on
other companies.

and on and on. 

any ideas?
